How Many Places in Canada are Named Fort Something?

Can you help me build a list?

How many places in Canada are named Fort Something?

I'm guessing there are sixty-three places named Fort Something. (I have done zero research, so if I'm right, you'll have to just believe me.)

And just for fun, where have you lived in Canada with Fort in the name?

I've lived just outside of Fort Qu'Appelle since 2003.


  1. that's an interesting question. Places called Fort-something were built on treaty lands... Forts that were built to protect settlers from treaty partners...

  2. Forts play a big role in our Treaty history, for better or worse. Do you think the fort metaphor is with us today?
